    "Writing Python without an IDE can become unmanageable, at some point you will look for an IDE to control the flow of your programming and to group projects together. When you do, take a look at PyCharm, it provides intuitive color coding, and smart code navigation to help move around classes and files with ease as you program."

    "Komodo IDE is a great program for creating quality code with all the popular formats such as Python, CSS, JS, and others. While the program purports to be easy to use, don't let that fool you. You still need a decent working knowledge of things or you'll be completely lost. Definitely not something for the beginner!"

    "Eric Python IDE is powerful, but not all that user-friendly or well-supported. If you don't know exactly what you are doing, you won't get the most out of it. It can be difficult to install, and, as I mentioned, you basically rely on community support for figuring out what the issue is when things go awry. It might be good if you like to tinker, but if you quickly get overwhelmed by problems, it might be too frustrating for you."

    "Sublime text split screen editing and instant project switch really let me manage my workflow in a hurry. The when I really needed to focus distraction free mode was there for me and made zeroing in a snap."

    "It's very simple, and gets the job done. If you need to do something complex, it has the power to assist you with it as well. It's nice that even though it's an old software, it's still being developed and improved. It's trustworthy as well, since it's been around for such a long time."

    "I am loving this IDE. It's an awesome tool to really boost my coding experience. I'm new to IDE's but now I see why everyone is using them. I love the ease of use and the comparability to commercial IDE is amazing. I love that I can use it for free and not have to pay for it."

    "I have come to find out that I am in a little over my head when it comes to programming language, development and/or applications of this general nature. The solution presented in this problem may be perfect for some but for me it just emphasized that I am moving ahead to quickly. The Pydev with Eclipse is offered as plugin, as I understand it, if one meets the requirements. I do not meet the requirements by a long shot. Thus, I will continue to build on my wealth of knowledge and when I reach this level I will resort back to this resource."

    "I don't use Python scripts a whole lot but I was experimenting with IDEs recently when I found Atom. Atom worked great for me and was able to easily make the entire process very quick and simple. I very much enjoyed using it and would continue to use it in the future as much as I can."

    "Spacemacs is a decent resource. The problem is that, since it's community driven, it really lacks organization. It's difficult to find the information you want."

    "Visual Studio from Microsoft is a powerful, free, and open-source IDE for Python. It's available for Mac too, which is great. I do feel that I need more training and a guide to the application to make the best use of it. Overall, though, I'd say this is my favorite of the IDEs for Python I've seen."

    "In much the same way that a programmer works with writing code, Geany's user interface is a good environment for creating text and organizing paragraphs. Geany gives me all the functions available in a full-fledged word processor without the unnecessary features and complexity that sometimes get in the way of note-taking and creative writing."

    "Thonny is a beginners user guide. This makes it easy and simple to follow. I particularly likes the animation. This gets my mind off the fact that I am learning something and allows me to have fun while using."
